Spennymoor Town Council oversees the Community Grant scheme, a grant pot of £4,700, with grants of up to £500 available for groups and £200 for individuals.

Town Hall

Each year, we set aside funding to help the projects of people and community groups who work tirelessly to enhance the town.

Be it an environmental scheme, community celebration, competing at a sporting event, the Council tries to help people go that little bit further.

Projects and people supported include:

  • Laura and Rachel Haddock, sisters who overcame health issues to learn Irish Dancing and compete across the UK, including in world qualifiers.

  • Spennymoor Detachment Army Cadets received funding to purchase electronic tablets for cadets to keep up to date with online training.

  • Gymnast Lucy Aston, who won bronze in tumbling at the British Championships and represented Great Britain, received funding to assist with competition costs.

  • Lauren Stokoe has been playing since she was eight and represents the England Youth Team. Her funding assisted with the expense of attending competitions.

  • Spennymoor Town Band doesn’t charge subscriptions and has many instruments it loans members. The Council is proud to support Spennymoor Town Band.

  • Byers Green Arts Group received a £500 grant to help with running costs, and investment was allocated to Kirk Merrington Village Hall to put on activities.

Town Partnerships

The Town Council works in partnership with local businesses and our communities to improve the appearance of Spennymoor and surrounding villages.

One way we do this is via ‘partnership’ arrangements, where you can part fund a tub planter or a hanging basket. The council purchases and installs them, and all we ask in return is that you water and nurture it, once in place.

If you would like to arrange a partnership, please contact us.

The associated fees are:

  • Oak Tub Planter at £20

  • Hanging Basket at £15
